Somewhat depressing, makes you think a little.
Really interesting machinima, not one of those mindless "look how beauty our stuff is" ones.

Interesting piece. It could be made better in a few places by changing the camera angle. A few times the 180 degree rule was broken along with the subject being to centered. Give your "actors" proper look and lead room and it will look better.

The final sequence you show, they are talking back and forth, him on the right, her supposedly on the left but when he cuts from one to the other she is frame right instead of frame left. This could simply even be fixed by mirrioring the current footage. All the voice etc is really well synced and looks great.

Can't say I really understood the point of the main character, cause some change by killing yourself?

When has that ever worked?

Monks sent themselves on fire in protest of Vietnam, I can't honestly say that worked. Not that I have all the information.

Really nice though.

That has to be the best piece of cinematography I have seen in a long while, Excellent job very well placed shots and great lip-syncing.

faceposing was pretty good not valve quality but a hell of a lot better than i or most people could do
the mapping was sub-par the distortions in the graveyard were plain ugly you really should have got someone else to help you with that ... and like the other guy said you did break the 180 degree rule, overall it was a great video with some deep meaning really makes you think,
